Dantecat, March 23, 2012

I found him as a stray.  Feeding him all winter long hoping he wouldn't freeze to death.  Finally he got to trust me and so he moved in with us and 2 dogs.  He walked in for the first time like he had lived here all his life. I will never have a cat like this one.  He wasn't a lap cat and he loved to chase the dogs and they would chase him back.  When I adopted him, he was skin and bones.  Also a big bump on his lower spine.  I sent him to the vet as soon as I adopted him to check on this bump.  It was cancer.  We have a great vet and so she operated and they got it all!  So I named him Dante which means eternal life.  He lived with us for six years before the cancer came back.  He would stand over my pillow at night and touch my face lightly here and there with his paw.  When we went for nice country walks well he followed right along. He was part of our pack (though I was careful where I walked so he would not have to cross the road)  He was amazing and beautiful.  He would just sit and stare into my eyes and I stop and sit and gaze back.  Somewhere, somehow we touched.  I think he knew I saved him.  I knew he loved me and our home.  Suddenly, without warning he was sick, deathly ill. The cancer came back.  Our wonderful vet tried so hard to save him. Not to be.  We lost our beautiful black and white boy in March 2012 and I still look for him on our walks.
Lord knows how much I loved that cat.  He touched me.  Rest Dante.
